KOCHI: The dead body of the woman, who was found embedded in concrete inside a plastic container near the Kumbalam Lake in Thrippunithura on January 7, was identified as that of Thrippunithura native Shakuntala.

The legs of the dead body were tied to the back and hands folded and concrete was filled around the body after being put in the plastic container. The dead body was more than a year old, and a probe led to the conclusion that it was that of Udayamperoor native Damodaran’s wife K S Shakuntala (54). The official confirmation was made after receiving the DNA results of her daughter Aswathy.

Shakuntala was the foster daughter of Udayamperoor native Sarasa, who had passed away years ago. Shakuntala and Damodaran’s was love marriage but the relationship didn’t last for long, following which she had been living in rented houses after rented houses with his son and daughter.

Her son Pramod had committed suicide after he became invalid after a bike accident. Shakuntala’s relationship with his daughter strained after this and she had been living alone.

Shakuntala had received lakhs of insurance money following the accident of Pramod and herself. She also had the money she got by selling her three cents of land in Perubavoor. Police suspects that her murder was caused by an argument regarding this money.

The suspicion that there is a connection between the death of Shakunatala and the death of a native of Eroor, who was a friend of both Shakuntala and Aswathy, the next day after the discovery of the plastic container, has also strengthened now.

It is also reported that Aswathy has given a statement to the police that Shakuntala left in a car with this native of Eroor about one and half years ago. The investigation team has informed that they have got clear information about the people who murdered Shakuntala.

Screw in leg became crucial evidence

There were only the skeleton and the skull that remained when the body was discovered on January 7. It was the investigation regarding the batch number of the screw that was found attached to the leg of the skeleton that led to Shakuntala.

Shakuntala had sustained an injury on her leg in a scooter accident that happened two years ago. The screw was attached to her leg at the Thrippunithura Vijayakumara Menon Hispital during her treatment there.
